Abstract or Introduction
Introduced in 1992, school league tables had the purpose to inform parents about attendance rates and pass-rates in public exams. The Labour party wanted to give the parents the possibility to see the difference between the schools and to assess their choices realistically. The school league tables include data about achievement and attainment from different sources, for example the Sats, the GCSE and the A-Level qualifications. School league tables can give snapshot of the average attainment in exams, depending on the measure used to draw it up. But it is not always easy to interpret the available data.
